Yeah Yeah Yeahs - Cool It Down
75
It's a really good record but I think it's short length hurts it in the end. The production is great with wonderful synth hits and leads paired with strong vocal performances. I think all of the songs are well structured and written and I wouldn't say there is a bad song here but some that felt were just okay at best. The highlights are truly great and some of my favorites of the year but it's short length and ending really hurt the overall project. Still a really solid LP at the end of the ... read more
Slipknot - THE END, SO FAR
40
What am I supposed to do with this album? Honestly, every track feels like it's a left over from WANYK. Everything that made those first three Slipknot records so special are not present here at all. I can appreciate the attempt to evolve and try new things which is probably why WANYK was the best record they've released in years. This album feels souless and bland to the core. In my opinion Slipknot's least exciting project to date.

Top Tracks- The Dying Song, Yen, H377.

Madvillain - Madvillainy

I'm extremely picky when it comes to hip-hop with most of it not appealing to me. However, this might just be one of my favorite hip-hop records I've ever listened to. The lyrics are provoking and well written. Doom's flows are fantastic. The instrumentals are wonderful and catchy. And all of this to put together into a interesting story that plays out throughout the record. It deserves all of the hype and more.

Top Tracks-All of them

death's dynamic shroud - Darklife

This album is a electronic music experience. It's hard to capture exactly what is going on with this project with words. This is everything that I love about the medium of electronic music. DDS using nearly every genre of electronic music and crafts it into this unique experience. It's heavy and abrasive with grinding pulsing bass synths then soft and delicate when it needs to be. I think the transition between these two styles it where the project shines best. Seriously enjoyed this album and ... read more
Anberlin - Cities

How do you follow up your best record to date? By releasing Cities, that's how! Cities in my humble opinion is the best example of mid 00s rock done to perfection. The lyrics are deep and thought provoking, the instrumentation is heavy and well written, and Christian's vocals are superb as always. I re-listened to this record in preparation and tried to find flaws in it and I could only if I was extremely nic picky. Few rock albums from this time I think how up so well while still very much ... read more
